Learn how sailing digital nomad, Erin Carey, quit her government job of 17 years to start her first online business – a Public Relations agency for digital nomads and adventure travelers. But, that's not all - she also did it from a sailboat with her husband and three kids!

 

After having built an online business from scratch with zero previous experience, Erin is here on Badass Digital Nomads to share her unique journey and tips with you.

 

In this podcast, Erin talks about why she and her husband decided to quit their jobs and learn how to sail. She explains how they came up with their “escape plan” to sail the world full time and how they manage to support themselves while sailing the world with their kids. Throughout the episode, she shares simple, yet tangible and actionable strategies for how you can make money remotely in a way that aligns with your personality and desired lifestyle. 

 

She also shares what it’s like to live on a boat with three boys under the age of 12, how she makes friends in the sailing community, and the challenges and inconveniences that come with boat life.

 

At the end of the podcast, she shares how she gets her digital nomad clients and discloses the most effective ways to pitch yourself or your business to get featured in media outlets. 

 

Although Erin notes that living on a boat isn’t just about sunbathing and piña coladas (it’s a full-time job!), she explains why the hardships are well worth the sacrifice.

 

Kristin and Erin also contemplate why an easy life is not necessarily a better life. They weigh the pros and cons that come with taking the path of least resistance in modern day society versus pursuing a life of adventure and experiences that result in stories to last a lifetime.
